With Cala Foods lease at 1401 California expiring in nineteen days, the Prado Group goes before San Francisco’s Planning Commission on Thursday seeking authorization for their proposal to divide and modify the existing 30,087 square foot space to house a 14,578 square foot Trader Joe’s and a 10,956 square foot 24-hour CVS Pharmacy.
The Planning Department recommends approval with the condition that a “no queue” policy is enforced for vehicles attempting to enter the parking lot at 1401 California.
If a recurring queue occurs, the owner/operator of the parking facility shall employ abatement methods as needed to abate the queue. Suggested abatement methods include but are not limited to the following: redesign of facility layout to improve vehicle circulation and/or on‐site queue capacity; employment of parking attendants; installation of LOT FULL signs with active management by parking attendants; use of valet parking or other space‐efficient parking techniques; use of off‐site parking facilities or shared parking with nearby uses; use of parking occupancy sensors and signage directing drivers to available spaces; travel demand management strategies such as additional bicycle parking, customer shuttles or delivery services; and/or parking demand management strategies such as parking time limits, paid parking or validated parking.
The Prado Group plans to start six to nine months of construction in January.
